PVC accessories for stucco, plaster and modified
stucco systems were developed by PLASTIC COMPONENTS, INC. Their purpose is
to provide architects and contractors with a rust-free, damage resistant,
economical alternative to galvanized and aluminum accessories. These products
are manufactured with high-impact resistant, lead free PVC and conform to
ASTM standards D1784 and C1063. All products shall be third party tested
to meet ASTM standard D4216-99 and be Canadian Code Compliant. All products
are listed by ITS/Warnock Hersey.
These accessories can be applied to ULTRA-LATH®,
metal lath, masonry, wood base sheathing products, gypsum sheathing, cement
sheathing products, block and any other approved substrate. They are designed
to control expansion and contraction, trim, and protect the stucco. In addition
PVC products will solve problems relating to static electricity, electrolysis,
rust, oxidation, excessive dents or kinks and damage in transit or on the
Installation should be in accordance with accepted
industry standards and local building codes. Remember to caulk all butt joints,
intersections and ends.
Ultraviolet Sunlight: Plasticizers and similar
chemicals which can migrate to the surface are not present in the PVC formulas
used in the manufacturing of PLASTIC COMPONENTS, INC. products covered in
Low Temperatures: All materials will gradually harden as temperatures change.
PVC compounds used by PLASTIC COMPONENTS, INC. are formulated to withstand
Coefficient of Expansion and Contraction: PVC products are weaker than the
materials to which they are attached and the plaster in which they
are embedded. PLASTIC COMPONENTS, INC. products are designed with perforated
flanges and “eyebrows” which provide positive bonding
of stucco to the product and substrates to which they are attached.
They become part of the building and will move with the wall, subsequently
they are not free to express their coefficient of expansion or contraction.
Availability & Cost:
PLASTIC COMPONENTS, INC. products are
generally lower in cost than aluminum and zinc products and will be competitive
with most galvanized products. All products are available from regional warehouses
which supply your local wholesale distributor.
A short form CSI specification is printed on each
product sheet and a product description is included to assist you in the
proper selection. A copy of the ASTM standard specification is available
PVC products have a built in resistance to damage and
will return to their original shape when subjected to normal impact. There
is no transmission of shock, which means damage is localized to the point
of impact. Repairs can be made by returning the product to its original shape
and reapplying finish to the damaged area. If cut, the product can be repaired
with vinyl cement.
Caulking: Caulking materials bond very well to PVC products. Contact caulk
manufacturer or Plastic Components, Inc. for specific recommendations.
Painting: No special preparation necessary.
